Colorado State University President Albert Yates will deliver his annual fall address to the university and Fort Collins communities at 11:15 a.m. Sept. 26 from the campus’ historic Oval. Yates will recognize university accomplishments, highlight goals for the coming year and focus on "Bridges to the Future," a statewide series of events to explore American values and history in light of Sept. 11, 2001. The speech will be followed by the traditional university picnic from noon-1:30 p.m.

Photo opportunities at the picnic include live music by the Colorado State University Jazz Band; a student-built Formula SAE race car; Little Shop of Physics; student-designed robots; Cam the Ram; a Rocky Mountain Raptor program exhibit; dairy cows, draft horses and wagon rides; and booths from each College.
